THINGS YOU WILL NEED:
2 hair elastics
1. Separate out a section at the front of your hair for the braid:
I’ve taken a large section from the top of my head and to my left temple.
2. Create a low bun at the nape of your neck:
Gather the rest of your hair into a low ponytail. You can use a hair elastic to hold your ponytail before twisting your hair around into a neat bun.
3. Back to the section at the front to start your braid:
Split it into three equal sections and create a basic braid (plait). Cross the right over the middle, then the left over the right. Continue crossing sections over until your reach the end.
4. Stretch out your braid:
Before securing the end of your braid, gently pull at the sides of each section to widen your braid. You can use a small elastic to secure the end of your braid if you need to.
5. Place the braid around your bun:
Curve the braid around your bun and pin the braid in place. Tuck in any loose layers and you’re ready to go!
